OneDrive

OneDrive is well suited for quick storage and retrieval of important work documents. It allows users to share links to certain files which works well for collaboration. In terms of storage you can easily monitor how many GB you are using and even up storage in 1TB increments. OneDrive works so much like a file directory on a work PC so it is easy to learn and navigate around. It works well on both a PC and a Cell Phone.

Pros

OneDrive

  • OneDrive does a great job of keeping file version history. I have had to use this feature many times and it is very simple to use. This one feature has saved my butt many times.
  • OneDrive synchronizes across devices very quickly. There have been many instances when I have added files online and, within seconds, saw the file show up on my local computer. This happens the other direction also. I am very impressed and satisfied with the speed of syncing in all directions.
  • The OneDrive app on my phone has been particularly helpful since it automatically syncs my photos (usually within seconds) and allows me access to all my files.

  • Performance via the SSD drives.
  • Writes back to our Private Cloud via Azure.
  • Easy to Admin via Web client interface.

Cons

OneDrive

  • OneDrive's visual feedback in Finder as to whether a file is syncing or already synced isn't always up-to-date with the actual status of these files.
  • OneDrive (on Mac) will occasionally fail to sync for errors that aren't accurate, requiring a restart.
  • OneDrive (on Mac) will occasionally fail for file name issues, where filenames allowed on Mac are not allowed on SharePoint, without providing an easy mechanism for fixing them.
  • The real-time collaborative editing user experience is not as good as Google Drive.

If I wanted to use just onsite storage the StorSimple device is already paid for.

I have given it this rating because it accomplishes the basic task that we use it for, storing and protecting our sensitive data. That being said, I hesitate to give it a completely positive rating, because I feel that the software performs at a bare minimum level, skimping out on some of the bells and whistles that would be nice.

It has a good performance, the pages load normally, access to the files, management, reports, everything is working well. With regard to integration with other systems, we have not done so yet.

Support seems to be limited, in my experience, to the general help articles offered online. Luckily we haven't experienced anything that has required more research than looking through those articles, and I can't imagine a scenario where you would need more support than that. Still, it would be nice to have a knowledgable person available to help you when an issue arises.

Alternatives Considered

OneDrive

I mentioned in another area that OneDrive is bundled into our Office 365 accounts - so let me start there. Dropbox will cost you $10 and more per month. Our entire Office 365 account costs $12.50/month for each user - and we get full Office with that. Enough said there. As far as features go - I've found that most of these cloud storage providers all afford similar feature sets as far as sync clients; apps and addons; storage space; etc. - so choosing one or the other really goes to the needs of the company and of course - what's in place already. If your company uses Google apps - Dropbox might make more sense because of tighter integrations. However - if you already use Office 365 in some iteration, OneDrive is already baked in.

Return on Investment
